Easy Toddler Thanksgiving Art

Can you tell I'm trying to find activities to keep my three year old busy during our afternoons now that he has decided he is too big for naps (seriously, send ALL the wine)...

This one is super easy. Cut some construction paper feathers and glue them on to the turkey toilet paper tube body. DONE!


Easy Pre-Schooler Thanksgiving Art

Paper plates, construction paper, glue and a toilet paper tube is all you need to make this adorable turkey craft. 

Take some ripped (or cut-out if you have time for that kind of perfection)...
add some glue...
stick the paper to half a paper plate...
finally, have Mom use a hot glue gun to add the turkey body (toilet paper tube). 










Halloween footprint and hand craft



Super easy Halloween art...


ProTip: paint baby's hands/feet while in their high chair so that they are strapped down and don't immediately run all over the house putting their painted foot and hand prints everywhere.



New Allergy Mom

Well, we finally had the suspicions confirmed today. Severe, anaphylactic allergies to peanuts, tree nuts, coconut and sesame.  I'm in mourning over the Reese's Peanut Butter Cups and Reese's Pieces he will never have. I mean, come on, he was named after my favorite childhood movie, E.T.. Obviously, I am a Reese's Pieces fan. In fact, when I have a chance to bake it's almost always some kind of chocolate-peanut butter concoction. When I need a quick, filling lunch, it's a peanut butter sandwich.  Of course, his safety and health is of our first concern, but I can't honestly say I'm not heartbroken. It's going to be a hard road ahead...
